Create a soothing living room scheme
Combine peppermint and soft blush with gorgeous grey tones to create a soothing and welcoming scheme.
Love this living room
- When it comes to colour, begin with a grown-up grey tone and introduce the palest of pastels.
- This look is all about co-ordination: use the same footstool fabric to make simple envelope cushions, and match paint shades to the sofa and carpet.
- Make the sofa the room’s focal point – choose an appealing, oversized, marshmallow-soft design.
- Hardworking furniture designs are key: a lift-up footstool can double as a coffee table with added storage.
Achieve this clean and contemporary scheme by keeping pattern to a minimum – stick to clean lines and unfussy, geometric prints.
Choose structured blooms, such as poppies, clematis and stocks, in pastel peach and lavender to lift a soft-grey scheme.
Layer soft felts, chunky knits, chalky-matt paint and washed linens to add inviting textural interest.
Candy floss & dove grey
Keep things nice and simple with this easy-going colour combination.
A statement chair in a geometric fabric will ensure this tonal scheme has plenty of modern interest.
Origami-inspired accessories add delicate, on-trend detail to surfaces.
